Emily Cremona - Part 4 Circus

Hi Darlings!

I hope you all had a lovely holiday. This is my final Emily Cremona collaboration post of the year. Take a look at this sexy little number. It's actually from her menwear collection, but we styled it up with a belt, heels, and some "circus tights" as my photographer called them, so I think it's pretty cute. 

Thanks Deena for the pieces and inspiration, I can't wait for more!

Emily Cremona - Part 3 Golden Girl

Hello Darlings, 

It's nearly time for Christmas and I am so excited to be back in England with my delightfully nutty Mum, known to most as "Sal" aka "Big Sal" aka "Sallaaaaaay".  More to come on that in some later posts. For now though, here is another gorgeous Emily Cremona design. Check out her beautiful corset belt with wings. Oh and credit to the wonderful Eve Beglarian for the sneaks - they were one of her christmas presents to me! Lucky girl I am xoxo

Emily Cremona Part 2 - Gothic Wedding

Hello Darlings!

This week I have teamed up again with the fabulous Deena Wassef of Emily Cremona - the NYC/Beirut based fashion house.  In this post I am wearing her beautiful bridal coat. Over the next few posts we will see a few more of her designs styled in the Ruthie-Darling way, so keep an eye out for that.

I am dedicating this post to my dear, dear, friend Gemma Glynn who is marrying her sweetheart next year in England! Congrats Gem and Jonny (aka Cookie The Bookie) - I can't wait to see you both soon. 

xoxo Ruthie Darling

A little footnote: Whenever I wear this coat I think of that fabulous line from the film 'Mrs Doubtfire'........"I was going kind of a refugee motif. You know, “fleeing my homeland” kind of thing. But look at you! This lovely Dances With Wolves motif. What’s your Indian name, SHOPS WITH A FIST?" Here is the offensive cardigan Sally Field wears to prompt the comment

RIP Robin :(

Purple Rain

Hello Darlings! 

Well, I am finally back from our residency at the wonderful Hermitage Artist Retreat (thanks Bruce and The Hermitagettes!) The musical workshop was a great success and there will be photos and videos coming soon. I'll post them here and over at our blog Back from sunny Florida it seemed high time to dig out the tights. Purple tights, naturally. Please enjoy this week's look and I'd also like to say a big thank you to my wonderful photographer Mr Denton Taylor, check out his website to see more of his work.
